Like every soon to be first time mom, I had a running list of all the things I was not going to do as a mother. Since I have struggled with my weight my whole life, I wanted to introduce only healthy foods into Jack's life. I figured what he didn't know wouldn't hurt him.
Wellllllll life happens and before you know it you are feeding your toddler processed cheese. I use to love those Handi cheese snacks and now Jack loves them too. He has been known to eat Poptarts for breakfast, cookies for lunch, ice cream for supper (not all in the same day).
There are also times when you are trying to play cards with the gals and the boys keep fighting and you just have to give them a bowl of M&Ms. Problem fixed for as long as the M&Ms last. Sometimes a mama has to do what a mama has to do.
If I could I would go back and tell pregnant Ashley "Shut up girl! You have no idea what you are talking about. Deciding on what your child isn't going to eat is a waste of time. You will get to a point where you cheer that your child actually ate anything that day. You will also want to buy yourself a trophy when you actually cook something. You will get to a point where you take what you can get."
Is there anything you do as a parent that you promised yourself you wouldn't do?
